Introduction to Sylvie Shirazi


It’s no secret that a healthy diet is the core of a balanced life. Whether you’re a professional athlete or just seeking a healthier lifestyle, making smart food choices fuels the body to perform better and nourish from the inside out. Eating well improves the mind, body and spirit and is crucial to overall health. As one of our four pillars, health & wellness is a key factor in living all 1,440 minutes of the day with purpose and intention, which is why we’ve partnered with top experts to inspire others to live optimally.

Meet Sylvie Shirazi—a recipe developer, food photographer and creator of the food and recipe blog, Gourmande in the Kitchen. Sylvie is one of p1440’s recipe experts and has crafted a variety of healthful and delicious recipes to make you feel stronger, healthier and re-energized.

Sylvie has been highlighted as a top food expert in Parade, Cosmopolitan, The Huffington Post, Good Housekeeping, Better Homes & Gardens, The Kitchn and many others. Her passion for creating nutrient rich recipes began at an early age. Her summers spent with her grandparents consisted of days filled with deliciously fresh and flavorful meals, lovingly prepared with quality ingredients bought daily from local merchants. Simple, seasonal food was the center of her daily life and she savored it.

When Sylvie began facing health challenges, she turned to food as a remedy. Through her experience, she realized food had healing powers that could help her feel better and improve her overall health. Sylvie desires to help everyone, not only those who face health challenges or dietary restrictions, to take control of their health and wellness through food. The recipes she creates are free from gluten and processed ingredients and are inclusive to diets that require grain-free, paleo, vegan and raw foods. She makes food that is both healthy and enjoyable. One of her favorite recipes is her raw chocolate fudge topped with a layer of rich chocolate ganache and a sprinkle of cacao nibs for an extra crunch.

When creating new recipes, Sylvie draws inspiration from a variety of things. Sometimes she will walk through the market and find seasonal ingredients she can incorporate into her recipes. Other times, she will simply use what she has on hand and create a delectable meal from scratch. Although her recipes are always unique, one thing stays the same—her recipes are meant to fuel the body and the mind. They are simple and easy to make for individuals looking for fast, fresh food. Like p1440, Sylvie has one overarching goal in mind—to help elevate the lives of those who want to live and feel better.
